Fun should always be an element in your everyday beauty routine and while my daily style is quite tame, there’s the few odd products that always brings a smile whenever they catch my eye. Here’s three that’s currently taking up a lot of my attention.
Nails are an easy way to add fun and it’s something I’ve been embracing more myself. As I’m typing this right now, my digits are painted in rainbow dots using the new Sally Hansen x Crayola* nail polish collection which lets you play with some of your favourite childhood colours in grown up way. It’s my first time using the Insta-Dri formula and I am hooked on the pure colour payoff even for tricky shades like the white. If you want to see it in action, check out this week’s #manimonday on my Instagram. In the shower department, I’ve been washing up with this smile inducing Shower Shaker* body wash by Zoella Beauty. Yes, I do feel much too old to be using this but there’s something about the sorbet coloured packaging and sweet peachy scent that makes me pick it up for a little whiff every time I’m in the bathroom – don’t lie, you secretly do this too. There’s an entire line of Zoella beauty bath products coming to Canada (via London Drugs) so some more snooping is in order when I pop by a store. And of course, since we’re all guilty of buying into cute packaging in the makeup aisle, you need to check out the new Essence Eye & Face Palette* which contains 4 shadows, 1 highlight and 1 blush all in a easy to use slim case. I own a few Essence colour products and most of them have been a hit for casual wear when you want an easy look that’s soft, fool proof and 5 minute friendly. This palette has a golden undertone that’s extra fitting for summer but according to the website, there’s also a taupey toned version floating around somewhere…hmmmmm.
